Port Lincoln woman arrested for public assault

A Port Lincoln woman will face court following an alleged assault in Port Lincoln on Monday.

At about 7.50pm police were called to a business on Liverpool Street following reports of an assault.

Upon arrival police spoke to the victim, a 34-year-old Port Lincoln woman who was treated at Port Lincoln Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect is allegedly known to the victim and this was not a random attack.

Following an investigation police arrested a 41-year-old local woman at about 3.20pm on Thursday.

The woman was charged with assault cause harm and bailed to appear at the Port Lincoln Magistrates Court on April 16.

Officer in Charge of the Eyre and Western Local Service Area, Superintendent Paul Bahr said he was disappointed with the nature of the incident and that it occurred in a public place in front of children.

"The trauma experienced, affects not only the victim but also bystanders, including children and others who came to victim’s aid," he said.

"Police will continue to display a zero tolerance approach to incidents of violence and disorder (and) will not hesitate to ensure that those believed responsible for such incidents will face court."
